A center that studies emergency responses to disasters like the Sept. 11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina is opening at a Manhattan college.

The Christian Regenhard Center for Emergency Response Studies is named after a 28-year-old firefighter killed at the World Trade Center attack on Sept. 11, 2001.

His mother, Sally Regenhard, has lobbied for safer high-rise towers after the trade center’s collapse.

The research center received over $150,000 in federal funding and will have a three-person staff. It is part of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
